SAGE-ING IS A NEW WAY OF AGING

Sage-ing is looking at life in a new way as we grow older, a spiritual practice that involves harvesting the wisdom of our lives, transmitting that wisdom as a legacy to future generations and giving back through service. With a confidence born from harvesting life experience and with a humility that sees service as the natural result of continued inner growth, we find ways to serve every day. This generosity of spirit elicits joy in human relations, while positively benefiting the communities and cultures we serve.

Sage-ing International is committed to transforming the current paradigm of  aging to “sage-ing”  through  learning, community building and service.

2018 SI Global Conference expanded Conscious Aging Community of Elders

240 Elders aspiring to be on a Sage-ing journey and those who serve them came together at the Sage-ing International 2018 Global Conference: Elder Voices Transforming the World: Our Stories in Action, October 25-28, in Chaska, Minnesota, to stand for the well-being of the future. There were seven  keynote speakers, over 40 workshop presentations, daily rituals, interactive sessions, fireside chats, walks in nature, music, poetry, film and dance. Engaging elders from a wide spectrum of cultures and traditions inspired and unified us to work together going forward to create greater good for our world. Over the next few months we will share stores from conference participations and future plans of action.

My life changed at an unexpected moment eight years ago. My youngest daughter was 16, lingering in the kitchen as I sautéed onions and mushrooms for dinner. She was reading the newspaper and suddenly turned to me in tears and said, “I wish I grew up in the 1960s.” Read more here. . .
